Renters' Rebates Available in Hartford
The City of Hartford is accepting applications for participation in the Renters’ Rebate Program. This program provides a direct, partial reimbursement of rent and utility payments made by certain elderly renters and certain totally disabled renters.
Connecticut State law provides a reimbursement program for Connecticut renters who are elderly or totally disabled, and whose incomes do not exceed certain limits. Persons renting an apartment or room, or living in cooperative housing or a mobile home may be eligible for this program. Renters' rebates can be up to $900 for married couples and $700 for single persons. The renters' rebate amount is based on a graduated income scale and the amount of rent and utility payments (excluding telephone) made in the calendar year 2011.
Eligibility Guidelines are listed below. For more information on the program and how to apply, contact Carmen Sanchez of the Hartford Department of Health & Human Services at 860-757-4730.
